IV Sedation Information and Instructions
IV or intravenous deep sedation is used to safely sedate your child to the point where dental procedures can be done safely and painlessly for an indefinite period of time. IV sedation at Tiny Teeth Pediatric Dentistry is administered by Special Anesthesia Services, a group of Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) who specialize in caring for patients needing sedation in the dental office setting. Your child's sedation will be performed solely by the CRNA, and they will not perform any other component of the dental procedure.
If your child is being sedated in our office with IV sedation there are some very important pre-operative and post-operative instructions both from our office and from Special Anesthesia Services. All of these instructions will be reviewed by our office prior to your child’s sedation but links have been included for your reference if they are lost or forgotten.

IV sedation is not appropriate for all children. There are certain medical and physical limitations that may not make your child a good candidate for IV sedation. For this reason it is very important that any medical condition or medication use be shared with both the pediatric dentist and the anesthetists at Special Anesthesia Services.
